Nah I think the Mclarens, Sutil and Kubica will be fighting for the podium places there.raymondu999 wrote:Actually, quite interestingly, Mark Blundell, on Twitter, has tipped Seb "may pull it together for a Monza win." A repeat performance of 2008 for Sebby? The straightline speed advantage seems to not support that idea though.

It's a complicated subject. The RB7 was a fantastic car, easily on par with the MP4/4 and the F2004. It was so good, in fact, there was virtually no way it could lose. Accordingly, there's no way to deny the substantial wrinkle that adds to any evaluation.raymondu999 wrote:[...]

I wonder - what do people think nowadays?
I'd call his 2007 and first-half-of-2008 car bad though (if you're talking about being slow/uncompetitive). It wasn't HRT bad, but it's similar to this year's Force India - a car that you had to give every inch to work your way up to the midfield. Or do you mean a car that has handling problems?bhallg2k wrote:he has yet to be challenged with a legitimately bad car.
